One of the most commonly asked questions by our clients is “what should my daily skincare routine be?”. While this is an important question, a lot of people tend to overlook the things which should be done on a weekly basis to keep their skin healthy. With this in mind, we thought we’d take a look at the things you should be adding in as a more long-range skin routine:
Although we sell gentle exfoliators which can be used on a daily basis, we also have more deeply exfoliating products, such as Decleor Double Radiance Scrub which should be reserved for weekly use. Unless you have very sensitive skin, exfoliation is essential for healthy skin cell regeneration, and sloughing away old cells will ensure your pores don’t get clogged and form spots and blackheads.
Let’s face it; as much as it would be lovely to indulge in a daily face mask, who has the time?! We do, however, recommend trying to use a face mask once a week to give your skin a deep treatment of moisture and essential minerals. A product like Decleor 2 in 1 Purifying and Oxygenating Mask would be perfect.
Even skin with excess sebum needs moisturiser, but normal and dry skin can really benefit from a deep moisturising treatment once a week. Elemis Superfood Facial Oil is a natural blend of highly concentrated plant-based superfoods that deeply nourishes and hydrates.
With the constant cycle of treatments, pollution, daily dirt and other things that come into contact with your skin, using a clarifying treatment a few times a month can really help. Decleor Deep Cleansing Clarifying Clay Mask is a creamy mask that is enriched with a cocktail of fruit and plant extracts for a double effect, purifying and softening. It’s suitable for all skin types that need a gentle purifying mask.
This may seem like odd advice from a company which sells skincare, but there’s definitely something to be said for leaving your skin alone sometimes! If you have the opportunity to do so, leaving your skin bare for one day a week, avoiding all make-up and cosmetics, can give your skin the time it needs to breathe.
